Employability Bridgend

Employability Bridgend is a council run project funded by ESF and WG, it supports people into paid or voluntary work. It is an umbrella project for smaller projects such as, Communities for Work, Communities for Work plus, Bridges into Work, NET and WSfA. It provides job searching, CV writing, training, mock interviews, etc., and each client is provided with an individual plan to meet their needs; enabling them to reach their potential. There is also funding to provide childcare, PPE, etc., and the staff can work with people who are currently in work, either facing redundancy, furlough, or, simply wanting to better themselves within their role or, secure alternative employment.

During these difficult times, there are a number of people losing their employment and looking for alternative work. Employability Bridgend is still working hard to present opportunities for clients, and are actively working from home to achieve this. There has been direct contact from several employers, discussing their opportunities and the positions that need filling urgently. The staff can also contact clients to advise them of vacancies, they can discuss opportunities with them, update their CVs, and remotely job search for them. There is also online training available in some instances.

While everyone is limited during this period, support and information can still be provided, and work is ongoing to ensure everyone who needs employment at this time, is being supported to achieve this.

Please see newsletter below, it explains in a little more detail what can be done, also, an EOI referral form, to be completed with as much information as possible and emailed to: employability@bridgend.gov.uk

Super-Agers project

As part of the Super-Agers project, online content to support older people with staying active at home has been developed, these can be found on the Aging Well Bridgend website.

People are being asked, are you ready to accept the ‘active at home challenge’?

To support people being active, video resources to join in with at home have been uploaded: a ‘Seated Exercise’ session to keep people moving and a Tai Chi session to assist with mental wellbeing.

To track activity levels, an activity tracker has been developed, which will help people to set goals, track their movement and exercise weekly whilst helping them to think about ways they can stay mentally active and stay in touch with people important to them to reduce feelings of isolation.

Although aimed at older people these activities are suitable for people of all ages.

The hope is to bring you more exercises and activities in future weeks, so people are being asked to keep an eye on the web page.
